When asked who's the best setter he has ever had, ninth-year Centennial volleyball coach Bill Shook tries to be diplomatic.At first, he names four players -- Jenny Majewski (1984), Sue Gallagher (1986), Dawn Reuille (1989) and Sezin Omer (1992) -- as being equal, although they played in separate eras and with different levels of players. Then slowly, Omer's name emerges from the group."They appear to be the best setters we've ever had," Shook said. "But I would say Sezin is the best of the four, just because the level of players around her is much better and so she's capable of doing more."

Melvin P. BerryLetter carrierMelvin P. Berry, a letter carrier who walked a Parkville route from 1960 until he retired in 1986, died of prostate cancer Aug. 31 at his home on Springfield Avenue in Northwood. He was 66."He was Springfield Avenue's guardian angel," said his son, Melvin Payne "Butch" Berry Jr. of Baltimore. "It's a small street. He would help people out."More than once, he said, his father was awakened by a neighbor whose disabled husband had fallen out of bed and needed help to get back in. Mr. Berry would go lift the neighbor back into bed, then return, uncomplaining, to his own.Born and raised in Baltimore, he attended city schools.

ANKARA, Turkey - Omer Kaptan was a farmer. But fertilizer prices climbed too high, so he left his land and moved to the city, where he sold pots and pans on the streets until the economy collapsed last year and workers from peddlers to bankers lost their jobs. These days, Kaptan strolls a poor neighborhood of illegal shanties hammered into a hillside here on the outskirts of Turkey's capital. There are wilting cabbage piles and chimney smoke and women knitting in the sun. Cats and children pick through garbage.

They secretly studied while pretending to play with bows and arrows.Lag B'Omer is also the anniversary of the passing of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, author of the Zohar, the foundation for Kabbalah and Jewish mysticism.
